A team of astronomers has created the largest ever three-dimensional map of our galaxy’s cosmic dust—and you can fly right through it.
Earlier this year — and in a discovery that screamed Nobel Prize — Harvard physicists announced that they'd found evidence of gravitational waves in the early universe, potential proof that our universe began with a bang. The claim was duly criticized, but a new analysis may be the most damning yet.
NASA has published another article debunking yet another doomsday imbeciles' theory: cosmic alignment between Sun, Earth and the huge black hole at the center of the galaxy will destroy planet Earth. Like, for real.
In 2006, a NASA spacecraft returned to Earth with samples that scientists hoped might contain cosmic dust, a byproduct of star formation. They let the public look for the elusive particles online. A squinting citizen might have just found one.
